Energy drinks are not safe to use. The combination of excess caffeine and herbs (the effects of which are still relatively unknown) can be harmful. Caffeine is capable of leaching calcium from bones. So…the risks taken are in direct proportion to the number of energy drinks consumed.
Fatigue is one of our bodies’ ways of saying that to maintain optimum health; we must stop what we are doing and rest. The energy drink masks this feeling and allows us to go on longer. Now there is a completely different problem to deal with.
Amazingly, while the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) limits caffeine to 65 milligrams per serving of either a food or a beverage; energy drinks can contain as much as 300 milligrams of caffeine in a single serving. This is because it’s not covered under the FDA, the researchers noted. This was reported at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in Washington, DC.
After watching HNN news report on energy drinks, they stated that they aer not really good for you. they overload you with things your body doesn't need in those amounts, and can actually make you feel ill and get the shakes.
Just eat a healthy diet, and drink lots of pure clean water, and you will have all the energy you need.
I dont think so, they are jammed packed with sugar and caffeine.
